TDE had a monstrous 2016, its success
helped by the release of ScHoolboy Q’s Blank Face LP. That
project is up for Best Rap Album at the Grammys and Q will find
out Sunday (February 12) if he won the award.
But if he
does overcome the odds and take the trophy, he may not even be
in the building for it. He says in an interview with Zane Lowe
on Beats 1 radio that he skipped out on the 2015 ceremony when
Oxymoron was nominated and probably won’t go this year unless
his daughter wants to, in which case they’ll go together.
In regards to the Grammy nod, the rapper says “with me just
being nominated, I won.” He explains how he doesn’t expect to
win the award as he goes up against Drake’s VIEWS, Chance The
Rapper’s Coloring Book and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo.
“None of them are street rappers,” he says. “Rap music came
from the streets. Not knocking them, I love Chance’s music. I
love Drake’s music. I love Kanye’s music. I’m a fan. They never
wanna acknowledge the other part. But the fact that 50 Cent, Nas,
Tupac never won a Grammy. Biggie never won a Grammy. Why do
artists like us never win a Grammy?”
